Just when things couldn’t get any better — the much-awaited Asia Pacific (APAC) Predator League 2020/21 has been announced to continue this April 6-11, 2021 online. Fans who were left on edge due to the 2020 league’s postponement have something to look forward to as teams across the Asia Pacific will finally battle it out in an online-only tournament.
“The decision to host the Asia Pacific Predator League fully online, instead of a cancellation, demonstrates Acer’s commitment to the gaming community,” said Andrew Hou, president of Acer Pan Asia Pacific Regional Operations. “With the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we made the decision to move the competition to Spring 2021 for the safety and best interests of the tournament’s competitors, fans, spectators, and staff.”
The APAC Predator League 2020 Grand Finals qualifying teams have secured a spot for this year’s tournament, while the remaining vacant slots have been filled in with teams handpicked by Acer. Altogether, these teams will battle head-to-head to take home the coveted APAC Predator League shield.
This year, the league has been divided into four sub-tournaments. The teams will be pre-assigned based on their geographical location:
- Dota 2 Asia
- Dota 2 APAC
- PUBG Asia
- PUBG APAC
A sum of USD 400,000 is pooled across the competitions of the APAC Predator League 2020/21.
All ticket holders of the postponed APAC Predator League 2020 Grand Finals will be compensated in full, while VIP ticket buyers are guaranteed Predator League souvenirs as a token of appreciation for their patience and support. Acer will soon release further details regarding the refund process.
The APAC Predator League 2020/21 will broadcast live on Acer Predator’s channels, Facebook and Twitch.
